Kemira has specifically designed our AMA biocides product line to kill or inhibit the growth of a number of troublesome bacteria typically found in and around oilfield applications, such as acid producing bacteria (APB) and sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB).
Biocides for Mining
AMA Biocides are tailored to meet each specific customer need and include both short- and long-term preservatives. Lumikem, our innovative monitoring technology optimizes the customers' process in real time.
Flocculants and Coagulants for Mining
We manufacture high quality Superfloc flocculants and coagulants designed for use in a wide range of mineral processing applications.
Hydrogen peroxide is used in chemical and mechanical pulp bleaching as well as in other chemical industries.
Kemira has developed the KemConnect SI control and monitoring system for the operator's peace of mind through enhanced detectability. The system supports your existing facility chemical management program and provides process and quality control through user, date and time tagging. The results are accurate and provide a faster recovery to chemical compliance.
KemDrill mud thinners
Our KemDrill line of mud thinners includes acrylate polymers, copolymers and formulations which effectively work to reduce the viscosity of water-based muds.
Our KemDrill polymers are designed to improve rheology control of water-based drilling fluids. They offer a cost effective solution for mud viscosification.
Our KemEcal™ dispersant product line spans a large number of acrylic–based polymers of varying molecular weights, pH, termination routes, charge densities and functionalities for desired performance characteristics.
Kemira offers a variety of best-in-class friction reducers to provide solutions to the common problems experienced by oilfield operators.
We offer a complete line of environmentally responsible and process–friendly defoamers that are highly functional in various oilfield applications.
KemFoamX for Mining
Our versatile KemFoamX defoamers product line includes the latest technology in silicone-emulsion and silicone-free environmentally-compliant and process-friendly defoamers that are suitable for several mining applications.
Kemira has created our unique and flexible line of KemGuard antiscalants for the treatment of barium sulfate, calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate scaling under severe conditions of different oilfield brines, high temperatures and pressures. Our scale control additives are tolerant to water hardness and are designed to function through varied modes of action including threshold control, crystal modification and dispersion.
KemPel Organic Binders
Our KemPel organic binders for agglomeration of iron–ore can be used as an alternative to or in conjunction with bentonite in the pelletization process.
KemSep flocculants and coagulants are designed for water and wastewater treatment in oil and gas processes. Our polyacrylamide-based flocculants are well recognized in the industry for high quality and performance reliability.
Our KemVert line of primary and secondary emulsifiers is designed to provide highly stable, invert drilling fluids with excellent emulsion stability, preferential oil wetting of solids
by the oil phase, filtration control and temperature stability.
Kemira MaxXtract™ CEOR Solutions
Kemira MaxXtract program has three components: PERFORMA, EXTEND and PRIME. Whether your requirements are for chemical products, chemicals and hydration equipment, or a combination of chemicals, hydration equipment and managed field services to oversee the entire polymer injection operation, Kemira is able to provide a custom-tailored approach that matches your needs.
Kemira Zeolite is used as a aluminum and silica raw material for aluminum based coagulants and alkali free accelerators for spray concrete, where the addition of the product stabilize solutions of aluminum salts.
Kemira's PolyDADMAC are high performance organic coagulants. They are liquid, cationic polymers of differing molecular weights and are often used in filtration applications or in conjunction with our flocculant products.
Kemira Polyaluminum Sulfate (KEMIRA PAS, PASS) is a basic, polymerized aluminum sulfate. It contains highlycharged aluminum and will offer advantages such as rapid floc formation, excellent particle removal and improved cold water performance.
Kemira's Polyamines are high performance organic coagulants. They are liquid, cationic polymers of differing molecular weights and are often used in filtration applications or in conjunction with our flocculant products.
Resin amine and PolyDCD
Kemira offers Resin amine and PolyDCD that are highly effective in specific industrial processes. They are used for color removal, paint detackification and treatment of paint or oily waste water.
Our KemGuard line of scale control chemistry includes specialty products designed to inhibit calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate, and mixed scales under mild to severe conditions.
Kemira Sodium Aluminates (KEMIRA SAX) are high quality, consistent, high basic solutions of aluminum. The product can be used in many water and wastewater treatment applications, in papermaking, and as a raw material intermediate in commercial industries.
